As all theatre fans know, Broadway wouldn't be able to go on without its ensemble members. Their hard work and dedication is at the forefront of the film Ensemble, which will soon be streaming on Broadway On Demand.
Produced by Telly Leung (Aladdin) and conceived by Aaron J. Albano and Mo Brady, Ensemble takes a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of Broadway ensemblists, assembling a multigenerational group of Broadway ensemblists on the one-year anniversary of the Broadway shutdown to dance and reflect on live theatre's extended intermission.
Featured performers include Cameron Adams (Mrs. Doubtfire), Albano (Hamilton), Stephanie Bissonnette (Mean Girls), Gaby Gamache (Aladdin), David Guzman (Newsies), Jacob Guzman (West Side Story), Sasha Hutchings (Oklahoma), James T. Lane (Ain't Too Proud Tour), iris menas (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story), Khori Michelle Petinaud (Moulin Rouge), Emilio Ramos (The King & I), Megan Sikora (Holiday Inn), and Karla Puno Garcia (Hamilton), who also choreographed.
Speaking of its timeliness, Leung shared, "It is our hope that future generations of theatre artists will watch this and know a little bit of what we went through in order to learn from it and become better artists and citizens of the world.”
Ensemble is directed by Pierre Marais (Aladdin) and moderated by Mo Brady (The Ensemblist). Broadway On Demand will begin streaming Ensemble March 11.
